Butler Point Whaling Museum

New Zealand

Butler point is a charming heritage location dedicated to whaling between the 1820's and 1850's. The house was built in the 1840's by William Butler and the museum now holds a restored whaling boat, a rendering furnace, some whale bone samples and harpoons. There are photographs, old prints and whaling ship models to see.

This a private museum and by appointment only. You can bring a picnic and enjoy lunch in great panoramic views afterwards, well worth a visit for a couple of hours.
